Famous quotes containing the word henri:

    This is the curse of our age, even the strangest aberrations are no cure for boredom.
    Stendhal [Marie Henri Beyle] (1783–1842)

    Since I am a man, my heart is three or four times less sensitive, because I have three or four times as much power of reason and experience of the world—a thing which you women call hard-heartedness. As a man, I can take refuge in having mistresses. The more of them I have, and the greater the scandal, the more I acquire reputation and brilliance in society.
    Stendhal [Marie Henri Beyle] (1783–1842)

    Science is built up with facts, as a house is with stones. But a collection of facts is no more a science than a heap of stones is a house.
    —Jules Henri Poincare (1854–1912)
